Catastrophe

Series 4 - Episode 6

Review

Seconds after Rob and Sharon’s plane touches down in the US on their holiday, they’re told about a (perhaps not entirely unexpected) death that makes for a poignant swansong to the last-ever episode of Messrs Delaney and Horgan’s spiky relationship comedy. It sees Rob sway between grief and an anger that intensifies when his abusive, cirrhotic father turns up to the funeral.

His relationship with Sharon also has some ugly moments as the two of them square up to a series of hard choices and potentially life-changing opportunities. Life, work and parenting are never easy – and nor is saying adieu to this brilliantly fearless show. But this is the perfect way to do it.

Summary

Sharon and Rob arrive in Boston for a holiday, only to receive the tragic news that Rob's mum Mia has passed away. Under pressure, the couple need to negotiate an estranged family member and a `grief vampire', while Rob has a tempting, but complicated offer from an old friend. Comedy, written by and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan. Last in the series.
